* Wolverine's OppositeSexClone surrogate daughter Laura Kinney aka Comicbook/{{X23}} has a similar problem that was implanted in her by the Institute that created her. A special "Trigger Scent" awakens the BerserkerRage within her. In this state she won't stop until whatever or whoever was exposed to the Trigger Scent is dead. The worst part is that unlike Logan, she cannot resist her Enemy Within. She's killed a lot of innocent people because of the Trigger Scent.

* The human Twilight Sparkle suffers this in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsLegendOfEverfree'' as she's haunted by her actions as Midnight Sparkle. It gets worse when she finds out she possesses magic and she's afraid of using it lest Midnight Sparkle takes control again. It takes a major pep talk from Sunset and the other girls to get her to realize her power is her own and not to let the past control her.

*** Certain factions requires their members to conquer their enemy inside for them to join fully. The Space Wolves initiation rites have a phase in which you must conquer and learn to manage to maintain your beast within, or you'll turn into a Wulfen, a werewolf-like being. And not even once you have managed to pass this stage, it is not sure whether or not the curse is truly gone. Already initiated members can have the curse activate in the middle of the battlefield, and gain strength beyond even their already superhuman abilities. While this is usually temporary and the one affected will return to his normal form after the battle is over, this is the result of the curse not stabilizing completely during the initiation rites.

* ''[[Series/TheOuterLimits1963 The Outer Limits]]'': In "The Man with the Power"a mild-mannered schoolteacher is implanted with a device that amplifies his brainwaves and gives him the power to control matter and energy directly. The rest of the episode has a very similar plot to ''Film/ForbiddenPlanet'', except that it takes place on contemporary Earth, and the resolution is the same: [[spoiler:The protagonist, riddled with guilt over the destruction he has caused, allows the power to destroy him and therefore itself]].

* Parodied in ''ComicBook/BlueBeetle''. Eclipso turns Blue Beetle into his deepest, darkest power fantasy, hoping to get an ally out of the deal. Unfortunately for her, ComicBook/BlueBeetle is an example of IncorruptiblePurePureness, so he becomes a dentist. And a pretty nice one, at that. "Hey dentists make six figures a year!"

* In DragonBallZ, [[OurGeniesAreDifferent Majin Buu]] was introduced as a huge, pink, disturbingly cheerful jinn that liked to [[BodyHorror turn people into candy]] and [[IAmAHumanitarian eat them.]] However, an encounter with [[AdoptTheDog an injured dog]] and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Hercule/Mr. Satan]] caused a HeelFaceTurn. Crisis averted, right? Well, up until the dog gets shot, at which point he becomes so furious that [[EnemyWithout all of his inner evil ''comes to life.'']] It then ''eats him, becoming even more powerful than the original as a result.'' Becomes [[spoiler: inverted when the good part of Buu struggles inside of himself in a desperate attempt to save Hercule/Mr. Satan, becoming the Ally Within you could say.]]

A specific form of SplitPersonality. Maybe the BodyHorror became a bit ''too'' fused with someone. Maybe the UnstoppableRage is getting...too unstoppable. Perhaps TheAtoner's past is taking on a life of its own. A [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human's]] [[InTheBlood Demon]] / [[{{Dhampir}} Vampire self]] is trying to take control, or that DealWithTheDevil is hitting a bit too close to home.

** In her Post-Crisis ''[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 2005}} book]]'' Kara had an evil doppelganger for a short while until she reabsorbed it. Her evil side -dubbed by SG fans Dark Supergirl or Dark Kara- embodies all of Supergirl's repressed anger over the loss of her people, and later it resurfaces and takes over. Remarkably, Dark Supergirl is ''less'' evil during her reapparance. She is pretty much an angry jerkass.
